A few days into the release of ‘Vetrivel’ Nikhila Vimal is a happy girl. Latha, the village belle, she played in the film, was noted and the actress is already into her next project. “Vetrivel is the name of Sasikumar sir’s character in the film. The story is set in Thanjavur and it’s basically a film that celebrates brotherhood. It has three heroines and I am happy that my character was accepted by the audience,” she says about the film which also stars Miya .

SA.pngThe actress is also excited about doing two back-to-back films with Sasikumar, “it was a great experience working with him.” Nikhila says since she started her career in Kollywood, she is totally comfortable in the Tamil industry. “I made my leading debut through Tamil. But that film is yet to reach theatres,” she says. She agrees that she was apprehensive before joining the set of ‘Vetrivel’. “Sreebala K Menon, the director of Love 24x7 was an associate of ‘Bhagyadevatha’, my Malayalam debut. While doing ‘Love 24x7’ I knew almost all members of the cast and crew. It was more like a family and I was not expecting the same vibes here. But, surprisingly, I never felt like an outsider after joining the location of ‘Vetrivel’,” she says. 

Though just a handful of films old, Nikhila has shared screen space with senior artists from both industries. “If Love 24x7 had stars like Dileep, Sreenivasan and Suhasini, here the cast included stars like Prabhu, Samuthirakani and Thambi Ramaiah. I consider my self lucky to get such co-stars at the very beginning of my career,” she adds.
